Clothing and Household Goods Freecycle Exchange for Employees

The CSR Committee operated by Toray Group companies in Hong Kong organized a clothing and household goods freecycle (free recycling) exchange for employees, which was held during a lunch break. The event was designed to reduce waste and encourage recycling, by inviting employees to exchange usable goods that they did not need. All employees were encouraged to participate, and more than 500 items were gathered including clothing, household goods, toys, stationery, and books. The committee plans to organize more events like this one to raise employee awareness of living sustainably, with consideration for the environment.

The emergency preparedness drill helped our employees learn how to extinguish fires, escape in an emergency, and stay safe. The lives of our employees are of utmost importance. I hope that employees will use the knowledge they gained to act in an orderly manner without panicking in an emergency.
